What is Reiki?

From the Japanese word meaning "universal life force".

Reiki is a laying-on of hands in the traditional sense of healing. 

The client receives energy through the hands of a certified Reiki practitioner. 

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.


It is a very simple system. Clients are treated fully clothed and in a comfortable, reclining position.  


Reiki brings a holistic approach to relaxation and compliments conventional medical treatment.
